ABOUT THE FILM
Named the best film of 2020 by Cinema Scope magazine, Taiwanese master Tsai Ming-Liang’s newest work has been accurately hailed as “pure rapture… a full body massage for the soul” by Film Comment. Two solitary men—one a middle-aged man grappling with chronic pain, the other a young immigrant in Bangkok—meet in a hotel for a moment of transformative healing and catharsis. With a profound sense of patience and understanding, Days movingly captures the isolation of contemporary urban life, while reaching out for a human connection. “A quietly aching stunner from one of our great filmmakers… alert and alive and gorgeously sensual. With Days, Tsai Ming-Liang has made something exquisite and rare” (Los Angeles Times).
COVID POLICY FOR ATTENDEES
Masks are required indoors and when interacting with Museum staff. Masks are highly encouraged outdoors, especially when social distancing cannot be easily maintained.
